Your view is similar to the Russian view, the too say are suspicious that Iran will be next.
Do you accept that the Assad as a Alawite does not represent the majority of the Syrian people and that this is significant in Syrian politics and as such he does not have a mandate to continue as head of the Syrian state.

Listen, its all irrelevant, Assads only ally Vlad Putin has even stated that Assads days are numbered. Without help, he will fall and he better have a good escape plan worked out, not the same one Gadaffi used either.

Look at the demographics. 75% are Sunni. Alawi make up a mere 12%.

I listened to the full speech and urge you all to do the same, Al Assad is an educated man, he is a popular leader, he is loved by the Syrian nation regardless what Clinton says.

it is much easier to support russia and china for their better track record....and of course their proxies by default. Not saying i love russia or china either. They are simply the underdog and people normally route for underdogs.
Extremely high probability you are going to deeply regret saying that soon.

This conflict could have ended months ago saving thousands of lives and maintaining the countries infrastructure, but this is not what the US/NATO/GCC want, and they do NOT want democracy or freedom for Syria either, they want complete and utter destruction of the Syrian nation and its people.
As part of operation 'Pax Judaica'. From the Nile to the Euphrates.
Pax Judaica to replace Pax Americana
I was, for the most, part with you until I clicked your link ans saw this:
Obviously, Israel did 911. Their Crime Network also blew up the Oklahoma City Federal building on 4-19-1995 killing 168 people including 19 children in the daycare center. The Zionist media covered up their crimes in both cases making them guilty of murdering more than 3,000 Americans in addition to treason and war crimes for misleading NATO nations into invading Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan
Anyway, I would pose you a question about all of this: When you see the difference between the way the past two years played out in Egypt and Libya. How one ruler chose to step down, creating a (mostly) peaceful transition, while another held on creating a civil war. How do you place no blame whatsoever on Assad for this war or any of the deaths in hand? How do you put it all on a foreign enemy?
Libya, in the same way as Syria, started internally. Only after the protests were being suppressed did outside help come. Whether you believe that help to have been a terrorist group or foreign government, they have no borders and came to the aid of the people. With Assad's choice to hang on, and suppress violently, he invited these borderless invaders in the first place.
